The 51-year-old has a number of high-profile players on his books including Paul Pogba, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Mario Balotelli and sought-after Ajax youngster Matthijs De Ligt.


The Italian Football Federation (FIGC) hit Raiola with a three-month ban from practising as an agent back in May and it was followed up with a worldwide suspension from FIFA.


Raiola has since filed an appeal against the bans with CAS and it was announced on Wednesday that he can go about his work - apart from in Italy - while the case is deliberated.


"The Court of Arbitration for Sport (CAS) has registered an urgent appeal filed by the football intermediary, Carmine 'Mino' Raiola, against the decision taken by the FIFA Appeal Committee on 28 May 2019 (the Challenged

Decision) which confirmed a previous decision of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee," a CAS statement read.


"In such decision, a three-month period of suspension from performing the role of sports agent in Italy which was imposed on Mino Raiola by the Intermediaries Committee of the Federazione Italiana Giuoco Calcio (FIGC) was extended by FIFA to become a worldwide ban.


"Prior to the filing of his appeal, Mino Raiola also filed an urgent application to stay the execution of the Challenged Decision. On 7 June 2019, the President of the CAS Appeals Arbitration Division upheld the application.


"Accordingly, the worldwide extension of the suspension of Mino Raiola is stayed pending the outcome of the CAS proceedings. However, the suspension imposed by the FIGC in Italy is not affected by the CAS decision.


"Further to the parties' agreement, CAS will conduct an expedited procedure with a shortened procedural calendar in order to allow for a final decision to be rendered at the beginning of July 2019."
